This cup and saucer from the 1840s has a design so unusual and geometric it is just as suitable for today. The combination of blue and gilt is fresh looking against the white ground.
Cup is widely flared, both pieces have gently scalloped rims.
Attributed to H & R Daniel based on associated pieces, and an example of this shape in Berthoud's "Compendium of British Cups".
No maker's marks, painted pattern number "6258"
Size: Cup approximately 2 5/8" high at handle, 4 1/8" top diameter; saucer 6" diameter.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
